Staff was very nice and friendly. We have tried the "antipasti misti corallo" over 7 different dishes extremely good and very well presented. Same for the desserts, home made, we have tried tiramisu and crema catalana. I woud definitely go back to try one of their first or second courses.

Real pity that we didn't find this place till late in our holiday week. Very, very tasty spaghetti alla vongole and a large well cooked steak with tasty salad. My companion had a good plate of tasty ravioli and then a good pizza. We ate the lot and enjoyed it. With water and two beers - 49 euros which in our view was the best value of the week. Service and ambience unpretentious, very friendly and attentive too which we certainly didn't find to be the case across the town. Deserves a visit.

Recent opening restaurant with the chef quite known locally as he was used to work in another popular restaurant, and you immediately recognise it because the menu is almost a copy/paste of the one available in the previous restaurant.
We went there with a fix menu but the wine was not in bottle but from draft, that often means cheap, the portions pretty small and we have to ask at any time for further water/bread.
To sum up, the place is nice and quite big, the service is ok and the quality of the food is good but at the end of the dinner it's really hard to remember what you ate.
Do not take me wrong, everything not bad but far away from being a dinner to remember.

From the outside this restaurant does not look very attractive, even if it is centrally located. But following a local recommendation we decided to give it a try.

Il Corallo turned out to be the absolutely best restaurant we experienced in Sardinia. I enjoyed there the best "spaghetti alle vongole" of my entire life! It was absolutely fresh, well prepared and extremely tasty. As main course we opted "il pescato del giorno all'algherese", a sort of today's catch, which the professional and corteous personnel completed to portions next to our table. It was excellent! The local wines served by this restaurant are not expensive, but tasty. Even the "sorbetto al limone" which ended our dinner was very well prepared. We were also positively surprised to be served fresh bread on a Sunday evening.

Needless to say: this restaurant must have one of the best cooks of the region. For the whole experience we payed just around 40€/person which was excellent value. Do not be dicouraged by the external appearence of this restaurant (it looks more like a pizzeria, also pizzas are served there). As a diplomat I can guarantee: this is the best restaurant in Alghero.
